NORTHBRIDGE, Mass. ‒ Many of the windows of Memorial Town Hall on Main Street are boarded up, but no one should be concerned.

The second floor windows of the historic building are boarded because the windows have been removed and are being refurbished thanks to $635,000 Town Hall renovation project approved by voters at Town Meeting last year.

Campbell Construction, with a bid of $425,300, was awarded the contract to do the window restoration as part of the renovation. The windows are being  removed and repaired offsite.

At a meeting of the Board of Selectmen on Monday, Town Manager Theodore Kozak said he expects the windows will be returned in about four weeks.

Second floor windows were removed last week; the company started on the first floor this week.

The painting and masonry portion of the renovation project was completed several weeks ago..

Memorial Town Hall, listed on the State Register of Historic Places, received a matching grant of $45,000 for window restoration. The grant comes from the Massachusetts Preservation Projects Fund through the Massachusetts Historical Commission.

It's nice to see this grand, old building being restored. It really is a beautiful building. Just stop and take a good look at it sometime!

Jethro,

I agree.

Would be nice if the Town could get some Grants, for an interior Sprinkler System, Energy Efficient Furnace, plus bring back the Great Hall to it's Newport Mansion Era luster.
